I had put in several hours laying out and cutting this basket weave design on this goblet and was worried it would snap while turning the final narrow stem and was relieved when it didn’t. But when cutting the base from the remaining waste with a parting tool the base just exploded into 5 pieces losing one in the dust pile on the floor. Lesson: always check your turning stock for small cracks before puting in hours on a project even if it is just practice. I hope to post one in one piece in the coming days.
